Fresh eggs from our pasture raised hens are always available. The apartment features a queen sized bed and if needed, twin air mattresses for children. A full sized kitchen with a gas stove, refrigerator, and microwave will allow you to 'cook in' with ease. There is Wifi and satellite television as well as a DVD player for those evenings you might want to relax at home.
The back deck is a lovely place to sit for a meal or to enjoy the peaceful surroundings. Visitors always comment that we provide them with an environment that is comfortable and serene.

About the owner: Our small farm is indicative of our 'self-sustainable' lifestyle. Nicol is a veritable 'jack-of-all trades' who did the restoration of our home and our barn. He is the organic vegetable gardener, the logger, the farm maintenance man and an excellent cook. Pamela is the native Mainer who keeps the perennial beds in some semblance of order as well as being the managerial staff of Rocky Hill Farm. We have traveled extensively over the years and some of our favorite places to stay have been small apartments or cottages in rural communities.
Why the Owner Chose Saco: We built our studio apartment in our beautiful restored barn for our daughter and her husband. When they moved to New York City, we decided that it was time to invite travelers like ourselves to our little corner of the world. It has been a wonderful experiment and we are very happy to be host/hostess to the amazing people who choose to visit.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio: Our farm allows you the opportunity to experience first hand a small working organic farm. Our location is an excellent 'jumping off' point for many of southern Maine's wonderful attractions.
